Rapid test to detect cardiac tissue damage in rheumatic heart disease

Indicative Funding
$30,000 over 2 years
Summary
Group A streptococci (GAS) cause a range of infections and also the serious immune-mediated complication of rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease (RF/RHD). We have identified specific antibodies against cardiac myosin peptides that are predictive of ongoing cardiac damage in RF/RHD. Blood samples collected from participating patients with RF/RHD will be: (1) assessed for specific antibodies to tissue proteins, cardiac myosin peptides and GAS antigens; (2) assessed for the phenotype of T cell responses to these peptides to further understand the role of these cells in initiating a deleterious immune response. RF/RHD patient clinical data including echocardiographic and laboratory data obtained at regular intervals will be correlated with the laboratory tests to determine the usefulness of the antibody test as a rapid diagnostic test.
